is the latest on sandy's devastating impact. this storm has been blamed for at least 38 deaths so far. there's new video this afternoon showing the massive destruction along the new jersey shore. governor chris christie of new jersey called the impact on his state unthinkable and said it would take months to recover. the storm swept houses from their foundations and left parts of the coast under water as you can see. new york city is also dealing with devastating floods. the subway remains closed after damage to the system was called the worst in its 108-year history. look at it there. meanwhile, massive fire at a beach front neighborhood in queens, new york, destroyed nearly 100 homes overnight and into the morning. firefighters were blocked from getting to the fire due to high floodwaters. a construction crane remaining dangling there. you see it atop 74-floor luxury high rise. thousands were ordered to leave nearby buildings. more than 8 million homes are still without power today in the country across 20 states. the worst of it is in new york, new jersey, and pennsylvania. i want to brin
's continuing coverage of superstorm sandy. we'll be live throughout the night and have reporters all across the region and msnbc meteorologist bill karins is on hand with us in new york. a quarter of a million of people without power are right here on the island of manhattan. and an emergency plan -- an emergency developed at new york university hospital on the east side of the city when that facility lost power forcing the evacuation of hundreds of patients just as the storm was at its most severe. rehema ellis is there covering it for the last several hours. what's the latest? >> reporter: chris, i can tell you it's an eerie scene where you go up to a hospital and there's just row after row of emergency vehicles of ambulances, they're not there dropping patients off for care, but they have lined up to pick up patients. more than 215 patients and transport them, evacuate them from the hospital to another facility. transporting them because as you say, they have lost power in this area. new york city's mayor michael bloomberg talked about there are massive power outages and flooding in the
government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cited the president's stance on climate change as the major reason. he writes, quote, one believes a woman's right to choose should be protected for future generations. one does not. that difference, given the likelihood of supreme court vacancies, weighs heavily on my decision. one recognizes marriage equality as consiste
keep running it. >>> also, did climate change have something to do with hurricane sandy? freak storms happen all the time, but this is precisely the kind of event that scientists have been predicting to us for years. >>> and why would an eisenhower endorse a democrat for president? well, susan eisenhower comes here to talk about it. she's endorsing president obama -- again. >>> and let me finish tonight with this question, does anyone really have a grip on who mitt romney is? this is "hardball," the place for politics. [ cheeping ] [ male announcer ] you hear that? that's the sound of car insurance companies these days. here a cheap, there a cheap, everywhere a cheap... you get it. so, what if instead of just a cheap choice, you could make a smart choice? like, esurance for example. they were born online and built to save people money from the beginning. it's what they've always done. not just something they cheap about. that's insurance for the modern world. esurance. now backed by allstate. click or call. >>> well, with one week before the election, remember that? remember that? we'
christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton, and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> when she was declared the victor, it was over. >> florida may be too far a bridge for barack obama, but by putting bill clinton and all the things you mentioned, it means the romney campaign has to pay attention to it. >> let's talk about "the washington post" editorial today because it gets to the question of fouling. of break
